A HISTORY OF THE FILSON CLUB 

Read before the Club, April 3, 1922 

The Filson Club was organized May 15, 1884, in Louisville. 
From the standpoint of continuous existence it is the oldest histor- 
ical association in Kentucky, and one of the oldest in the Middle West. 
The thirty-one books of Kentucky history written by its members and 
printed as Filson Club Publications are well known among students 
of national and Kentucky history and can be found in many of the 
large libraries in the country. These Publications, however, repre- 
sent only one phase of work accomplished by the Club: Other 
activities are shown by the papers written for the Club and by sundry 
materials gathered by members and now preserved in its Archives. 

Historical societies in other states and cities have done much 
good work, but few, if any, were handicapped as has been The Filson 
Club in not owning a home of its own. A Filson Club building and 
money to maintain it would have encouraged even greater activities 
among the members and resulted in greater contributions to the 
Archives. Because the Club had no fireproof building much material 
in Kentucky pertaining to the State's history has passed into the 
hands of libraries and historical societies in other states. Its chief 
activity has been the encouragement of research work and the issuing 
of Publications. These Publications have given the Club a position 
among the best historical societies in America. 

Historical societies have been organized from time to time in 
Kentucky for the purpose of gathering material, but they were short 
lived and such materials as they had collected were dissipated. Most 
of the pioneers who made early Kentucky history were then dead and 
gone, and even those who had heard them tell of the exploits of them- 
selves and their contemporaries, were long past middle age and were 
rapidly dying out. Men like Dr. Lyman C. Draper had been holding 
interviews with pioneers and their families for many years, obtaining 
such written evidence as they were able to gather, with the purpose 
of writing one or more works dealing with those stirring events and 
the active, hardy people of pioneer times. Dr. Draper's wonderful 



The Filson Club 

collection of material long ago passed into the hands of the Wisconsin 
State Historical Society. 

Much, if not most, of the material that was then gathered was 
collected by non-residents of Kentucky and removed from the State. 
Some Kentuckians began to recognize that it was high time the 
descendants of those who made the Mississippi River instead of the 
Appalachian Mountains the western boundary of our "Thirteen 
United States," and who built up the grand old Commonwealth, 
should bestir themselves and begin to collect and save what was left. 

Accordingly, on May 15, 1884, Reuben T. Durrett, Richard 
H. Collins, William Chenault, John Mason Brown, Basil W. Duke, 
George M. Davie, James S. Pirtle, Thomas W. Bullitt, Alexander 
P. Humphrey and Thomas Speed, ten of the leading spirits of Louis- 
ville, met at the residence of Colonel Reuben Thomas Durrett 202 
East Chestnut Street, at the southeast corner of Brook and or- 
ganized an association for the purpose of collecting and preserving 
Kentucky history. Colonel Durrett, the chief instigator of this 
movement, was a journalist, lawyer, a man of affairs, and a student 
of Kentucky history. He was elected president, with Thomas Speed 
secretary and E. T. Halsey treasurer. 

The organization was named The Filson Club. It was so 
called in honor of John Filson who, one hundred years before, in 
1784, published the first history of Kentucky The Discovery, Set- 
tlement and Present State of Kentucke. The first paper read before 
the Club was by Colonel Durrett, and with equal appropriateness 
an enlargement of this paper was its first Publication JOHN FILSON, 
The First Historian of Kentucky, An Account of His Life and Writings. 

For the benefit of new and prospective members Colonel 
Durrett published the following synopsis of the career of John Filson : 

"The Filson Club is an historical and literary association of 
ladies and gentlemen, located in Louisville, Kentucky. At its 
first meeting the association was named The Filson Club, in honor 
of John Filson who was the author of the first history and the first 
map of Kentucky. Filson's history, a quaint little volume of 118 
octavo pages, entitled Kentucke, was published at Wilmington, 
Delaware, in 1784, and his map appeared in Philadelphia the same 
year. The book and the map have now become very scarce, and 
when sold bring high prices. 



History of the Club 

"John Filson was a Pennsylvanian by birth, and was born 
on the Brandywine, probably in 1747. His education, though below 
the standard of modern times, was sufficient to qualify him for sur- 
veyor, school-teacher and author. He must have known something 
of Greek, Latin and French, as he used a word from each of these lan- 
guages in giving a name to the town first established where Cincinnati 
now stands. He laid out a town there in 1788 and named it Los- 
antiville. This name seems to have been made up of the initial L 
for Licking, the Latin os for mouth, the Greek anti for opposite to, 
and the French ville for the city, meaning all together the city op- 
posite to the mouth of the Licking River. The name of Losantiville 
disappeared after the death of Filson, and was succeeded by Cin- 
cinnati. 

"Filson probably came to Kentucky in 1782 as one of the host 
of adventurers who sought lands here to be paid for with the paper 
money of Virginia issued during the Revolutionary War. In 1783 
he located in Fayette County 12,368^ acres and in Jefferson County 
1,500 acres, making a total of 13,868^ acres. He also located lands 
in the Illinois country, but how many acres or where situated cannot 
now be ascertained because of the burning of records at Vincennes in 
1814. 

"While Filson was roaming over the country in search of 
lands, he was also gathering information for his history and map of 
Kentucky. He was constantly thrown with Daniel Boone, Levi 
Todd, James Harrod, Christopher Greenup, John Cowan, William 
Kennedy, and others who hunted game and fought Indians over the 
whole country and were well acquainted with every part of it. It 
is said of Boone that he was so perfect a woodsman that he could 
walk up and down a long creek or river and then tell every stream 
that came into it, and designate every peculiarity on both banks. 
From such men as these Filson got the facts for his history and map, 
and hence they were wonderful productions for their day. In his 
history he inserted the biography, or rather the autobiography, of 
Daniel Boone, which not only secured the immortality of the old 
pioneer but made the first and most valuable chapter in early Ken- 
tucky history. On his map were laid down all the forts or stations 
which shielded the pioneers from the Indians, and it is not too much 
to say that no one can at this day properly understand the early 
history of Kentucky without Filson's history and map. 

[ 7 ] 



The Filson Club 

"While he was at work upon his town of Losantiville in 1788, 
he went with a surveying and exploring party to the Great Miami 
River. After ascending this stream some miles he became separated 
from his party, and he was never seen afterward. Search was made 
for him, but nothing of his remains was ever found. Neither did 
intelligence of him ever come from any Indian tribe into which he 
might have fallen by capture. Whether a straggling Indian slew 
him or a wild animal made way with him, or his own exhausted heart 
ceased to beat, may never be known. The grand old sycamores of 
the Miami Valley beneath which he disappeared have told no story 
of the manner of his departure." 

Six meetings of the Club were held in 1884, at varying intervals. 
In February, 1885, the time for regular meetings was agreed upon 
the first Monday night of every month, except July, August and 
September, the summer vacation. Nine regular meetings have been 
held every year since then, on the nine specified Monday nights, 
though special meetings have occasionally been called. 

The Club was incorporated on October 6, 1891. Its purpose 
is thus set forth in one of the articles of incorporation: "The prin- 
cipal place of business of this corporation is Louisville, Kentucky. 
The general nature of the business to be transacted is the collection 
and preservation and publication of historic matter pertaining to 
the State of Kentucky and adjacent states; and the cultivation of a 
taste for historic inquiry and study among its members. The Club 
shall have power to collect, maintain and preserve a library and a 
museum, and to acquire suitable grounds and buildings in which to 
place them." 

As to qualifications for membership, anyone interested in 
Kentucky history was then, and still is, eligible. Preparing a paper 
for the Club never was obligatory. 

From 1884 to 1913 meetings were held in Colonel Durrett's 
library at his residence, the main feature being a prepared paper, a 
set lecture or an informal talk, followed by an open discussion of the 
subject, and, frequently, by personal reminiscences. Then a closing 
recess, as it were, took place; all present became Colonel Durrett's 
personal guests. Cider was served and the gentlemen who smoked 
were supplied with "Filson Club" cigars made by a member of the 
Club. 



History of the Club 

Colonel Durrett's home was the depository and headquarters 
for the Club from its beginning and continued as such for twenty- 
eight years until his death in 1913. After his death the Club's 
Archives were transferred to the private library of R. C. Ballard 
Thruston, in the Columbia Building, where they are carefully pre- 
served and made available to the public. 

The meetings in Colonel Durrett's library were, of course, 
open only to members, personally invited guests, and representatives 
of the press. Since his death all meetings except those in January have 
been in the Louisville Free Public Library and were open to the public. 
The first of these January meetings was held in 1914, when the Club 
was the guest of Bennett H. Young in his residence on Ormsby Avenue. 
Since that year both members and their personally invited friends 
have been, on each first Monday in January, the guests of Vice- 
President R. C. Ballard Thruston in his library where the Club's 
portraits, papers, books and relics are housed. At these meetings 
the social feature, which in Colonel Durrett's time was made so 
attractive, continues to add its charm and interest, and those attending 
are given an opportunity to look over the latest additions to the 
Archives. 

Down to 1913 formal records of meetings were not kept but 
short notes were made and used as memoranda for a verbal report at 
the succeeding meeting. Neither notes nor minutes prior to 1913 are 
now in the Archives of the Club. Membership lists, however, were 
compiled every year and are preserved. 

Ever since the organization of the Club the Louisville news- 
papers have been liberal in publishing notices of the meetings, giv- 
ing the title of the subject to be presented and discussed, and the 
day following a meeting each has printed a more or less detailed ac- 
count of the proceedings, if the topic was of general interest. 

The Centennial of Kentucky, June I, 1892, was the first big 
event celebrated by the Club. It was elaborately observed by a 
public meeting at Macauley's Theatre in the morning, followed by 
a banquet to members and guests at the Gait House in the evening. 
The speeches delivered were carefully prepared and are given in full 
in Publication No. 7: THE CENTENARY OF KENTUCKY. 

Another significant celebration was the Club's silver jubilee 
held in Colonel Durrett's library, May 15, 1909. Addresses were 
made by Zachary F. Smith, Alfred Pirtle, J. Stoddard Johnston and 

[ 9 ] 



The Filson Club 

Bennett H. Young. On that occasion Colonel Durrett was presented 
with a life-size portrait of himself, painted by Aurelius C. Revanaugh. 

Colonel Durrett was born January 22, 1824, and therefore 
was in his eighty-sixth year when the Club celebrated its silver jubilee 
in 1909. He not only was one of its founders, but the real founder 
the father of the Club and its president from its foundation until 
his death on September 16, 1913. His library was his paradise; 
Kentucky history was his hobby. The annual dues were $3.00, but 
that was not sufficient to pay for the annual Publication which each 
member received. The deficit was sometimes borne by the author 
of the book, but usually by Colonel Durrett, whose expenditures in 
financing the Club exceeded $1000.00 a year a sum he cheerfully 
paid. 

He had long hoped a Filson Club building would some day be 
procured for the preservation of his library and the Club's Archives 
and that the collections would grow and develop into a Mecca for 
students of the history of Kentucky and the Ohio Valley, and stand 
as a memorial to the men and women whose lives and deeds made 
possible the achievements of their successors. He offered to give 
his library to the Club if a suitable building for housing it would be 
procured. 

In 1896 he had advocated the raising of funds to purchase 
the Custom House (now the Courier-Journal Building) at Third and 
Liberty streets, and at a later date he tried to encourage the purchase 
of what was then the Norvin Green residence (now the Young Women's 
Christian Association) at Second and Broadway, promising in each 
instance that he would donate his library should the building be 
procured, made fireproof, and devoted to the collection and pres- 
ervation of historical material. But the aim was too high and the 
Club was not able to effect either purchase. 

More than once he remarked that "a few of our members do 
the work and the rest help make the meetings pleasant and attrac- 
tive." Spurred by the keen interest of the few he, as late as June, 
1912, expressed his intention of leaving his library to the Louisville 
Free Public Library which, since 1908, had occupied a well-equipped 
modern fireproof building. 

When left alone he evidently reflected that his library, which 
he had spent years collecting and which he loved as a child, might be 
dissipated and the best of it find its way into private hands, as had 

C 10 ] 



History of the Club 

been the case with the archives of some of the earlier historical societies 
on their discontinuance. He feared that any public library controlled 
by a city government might at some time be dominated by unscrupu- 
lous politicians. He felt convinced that in Louisville and Kentucky 
there was a great lack of interest in the collecting and preserving of 
history. The only other state-wide historical society in Kentucky 
the Kentucky State Historical Society, at Frankfort was then 
making little or no progress. Except for the persistent efforts of 
Mrs. Jennie C. Morton, the regent, that society probably would 
have passed out of existence shortly after it was reorganized in 1896. 

So a few months before his death, negotiations were entered 
into which resulted in the sale of the Durrett Library to the Uni- 
versity of Chicago. Several conditions were attached; among them 
that it be housed in a fireproof building or room, that it remain in- 
tact, and that it be called "The Durrett Collection." 

When the sale became known in Louisville, it was a sad blow 
to the Louisville Free Public Library, for the board had refrained 
from buying many rare and valuable books because copies of them were 
among the 30,000 volumes owned by Colonel Durrett which they 
expected to acquire at his death. 

The Filson Club's property was, of course, not included in 
the sale of the Durrett library. No separate list of the Club's books 
and other belongings had been kept. Everything presented to 
Colonel Durrett for his library and for the Club and all books and 
magazines received as exchanges were shelved with his books, and, not 
being specifically marked, went with his library to the University of 
Chicago. Thus much of the Club's valuable material passed into 
the hands of the university because there was no record or other 
means of identification. 

A few years after the sale a member discovered among the 
documents that had been shipped to Chicago four marked as the 
property of The Filson Club four original orderly books containing 
the records of General Anthony Wayne's expedition against the 
Shawnee Indians in 1794-96 and they were returned. On another 
occasion seven volumes of early court and surveyor's records of 
Jefferson County were found among the books delivered to the 
university and they, too, were returned to their official keepers. 

Since Colonel Durrett's death the Archives have been in the 
custody of Mr. Thruston, who at his own expense not only houses 

[ 11 ] 



The Filson Club 

the Club's books, documents and other belongings, but also care- 
fully marks and lists and separately shelves them. 

It is likely that if Colonel Durrett had offered to sell his library 
to Louisville, the city or some of its citizens would have purchased 
the collection and presented it to the Public Library or to The Filson 
Club. Be that as it may, the Durrett Collection was neither given 
nor sold to The Filson Club, nor to any other historical society in 
Kentucky because none owned a fireproof building devoted to history. 

Kentucky's annals have contributed more to the early history 
of the Middle West than have the annals of any other state. Never- 
theless many of the other states have gathered and deposited, and are 
still gathering and depositing, in their archives more original ma- 
terial on Kentucky than Kentucky itself. The largest collections 
gathered in Kentucky were those of Draper and of Durrett, and both 
have left the State. 

From the time of its origin down to 1913 the Club was to a 
very great extent dependent on Colonel Durrett. During those many 
years The Filson Club was, in a sense, his club. That dependence 
began to react after his death and to arouse the membership to a 
realization of the necessity of running a less private and more public 
association. In 1914 the Club began to consider the framing of a 
new constitution and the adopting of new by-laws. Because of the 
World War and the business conditions throughout the country that 
followed, it was deemed best to attempt no radical changes for a 
while. The membership now feels that the time for such changes is 
rapidly approaching. Among other projects contemplated is the 
acquiring of a building. 

Since Colonel Durrett's death the usual number of meetings 
has been held every year, but they were at the Louisville Free Public 
Library, open to the public and therefore without the charming social 
features that were characteristic of those held in his home. The Jan- 
uary meetings, however, as already stated, are different. They are 
intended not only as "recurrences" of the Durrett meetings, but are 
also arranged for the purpose of familiarizing the members with the 
Club's property. 

Since 1913 many original papers have been read, five new 
Filson Club Publications have been published, and some material has 
been added to the Archives. The dues have been changed to $2.00 a 
year, and the money used toward defraying the general expense of the 

[ 12 ] 



History of the Club 

Club. Every officer contributes his work, and has done so since the 
beginning of the organization. The Publications issued since Colonel 
Durrett's death have been financed by the author of the book or by 
some other member. 

On November 19, 1918, the anniversary of the birth of 
General George Rogers Clark was celebrated. On April 24, 1921, 
the Club made a pilgrimage to the sites of some of the old forts or 
stations on Beargrass Creek, and thus inaugurated visits to unmarked 
historic places for the purpose of arousing interest in them. Re- 
search work is being done along various lines of Kentucky history and 
the preparation of more papers and Publications continues. 

Much Kentucky history which otherwise might have been 
lost forever is preserved in the Club's thirty-one Publications and in 
its many papers. From the standpoint of its Publications and papers 
the Club has proved a success. The growth of its Archives, compared 
to its activities in the various lines of original research, has not been 
a proportionate success. This is due to lack of sufficient space for 
the preservation and display of a library and museum, which display 
in turn would have resulted in the acquiring of more books and relics 
and other material bearing on Kentucky history. When the Club 
has procured a building of its own, it will be in a position to increase 
its activities, influence and usefulness. 

Regardless of the result and character of the future activities 
of The Filson Club, the thirty-one Publications issued and the many 
papers prepared by members from 1884 to 1922 will ever stand as a 
monument to Kentucky and the historical society founded by Colonel 
Reuben T. Durrett.

FILSON CLUB PUBLICATIONS 

1884-1922 

The Club's activities in the field of publishing history have 
gone beyond the expectations of the charter members and many of 
the others who followed. Thirty-one books of original matter on Ken- 
tucky history, written by members, have been issued as Filson Club 
Publications. Other original papers on local and state history, also 
written for the Club and read at its meetings, are still unpublished. 
Selections from these papers will be printed from time to time. 

The thirty-one Publications are monographs varying from 
seventy-five to 300 pages, except one, which is a book of 545 pages. 
The average is about 225 pages. They were printed for the purpose of 
making more easily available the material gathered by the members 
who did the research work and prepared the manuscripts. These 
Publications have been favorably reviewed by the press and carefully 
studied by historians and others interested in the early Middle West. 

Colonel Theodore Roosevelt was among the first historians 
to visit the large private library of Colonel Durrett shortly after the 
Club was organized and Colonel Durrett became the custodian of 
its Archives. In the preface to The Winning of the West, published 
in 1889, Colonel Roosevelt says: "For original matter connected 
with Kentucky, I am greatly indebted to Colonel Reuben T. Durrett, 
of Louisville, the founder of The Filson Club, which has done much 
admirable work of late years. ... I am also under great obliga- 
tion to Colonel John Mason Brown of Louisville, another member of 
The Filson Club." To his chapter entitled "Kentucky Until the End 
of the Revolution" Colonel Roosevelt adds in a footnote: "I cannot 
forbear again commenting on the really admirable historic work now 
being done by Messrs. Brown, Durrett, Speed, and other members of 
The Louisville Filson Club." At that time (1888) only four Publi- 
cations had been issued by the Club, and all of them are cited in 
The Winning of the West. 

The Filson Club Publications are cited by many writers. In 
fact nearly every well prepared book or paper bearing directly or 
indirectly on the early history of Kentucky or the Middle West, 
published since about 1900, quotes from or cites one or more of The 

[ 14 ] 



Filson Club Publications 

Filson Club Publications. As authority in its particular field of 
history each book ranks among the highest. The Club proposes to 
maintain that high standard. 

The Publications are of interest to the casual reader of Ken- 
tucky history as well as to the careful student. School teachers 
frequently use selections from them for readings or recitations. Re- 
cently one of them THE POLITICAL CLUB was dramatized by Mrs. 
W. T. Lafferty, a member of The Filson Club, and Miss Frances 
Marsh, of the University of Kentucky. It was presented for the 
first time in May, 1921, before the meeting of the Kentucky Feder- 
ation of Women's Clubs then in session at Danville. Thus in many 
ways do the Club's books arouse an interest in history one of the 
purposes for which they were published. 

All the Publications are limited editions; all are bound in paper 
cover, except No. 30 and No. 32, some copies of which are bound in 
paper, others in green cloth, and No. 31, all of which are in green 
cloth. These books are not for sale in the commercial sense, but 
copies left beyond the requirements of the Club for its members, its 
exchanges with other historical associations, and for gifts, are sold 
at about cost price. All the Publications are from the press of John 
P. Morton and Company, Louisville, except No. 29 and the first 
edition of No. I. For information regarding prices write to The 
Secretary, The Filson Club, Louisville.

FILSON CLUB PAPERS 

1884-1922 

The following list, heretofore not published, gives the titles of 
papers prepared for The Filson Club, read at one of the meetings and 
deposited in the Club's Archives. This list includes the papers in 
Filson Club Publications No. I to No. 32. 

Papers read before the Club but not permanently deposited 
in the Archives are not included. Some of the manuscripts read prior 
to 1917 were withdrawn from the Archives and submitted by their 
authors to magazines or newspapers, but no record was kept of the 
time or place of their appearance in print. The Secretary will be glad 
to have his attention called to any article in print designated as a 
paper read before the Club prior to 1917. 

All papers read before the Club since 1917 are in the Archives, 
and, if published, a notation shows when and where printed. 

A set lecture or an informal talk, instead of an original paper, 
constituted the main feature of many of the Club's meetings. These 
lectures and talks were instructive and entertaining and did much 
toward promoting an interest in Kentucky history. They were, how- 
ever, not preserved in manuscript or any other form and therefore 
no copies or synopses of them appear in the Archives. 

In addition to the papers here listed there are other manu- 
scripts in the Archives, such as old letters, diaries, journals and draw- 
ings. These documents and the rare old books, newspapers and 
magazines and the various relics bearing on local, state and national 
history are carefully preserved. The Club proposes to print a com- 
plete catalogue of the Archives after a building sufficiently large for 
the better protection and handling of its belongings has been procured . 
Not until then can the documents and other material be made more 
conveniently accessible to students and exhibited more advanta- 
geously to the public.
